Custom Silk Wiggle Dress & Customer Photo

This was a fun project, the client sent me this beautiful silk print fabric with a great wide border, the basic dress shape was inspired by a vintage dress she saw on Etsy. She wanted set in sleeves to the elbow and pockets added. The border placement was the most tricky, getting the shoulders to line up and switching the sleeve border so it matched the under-bust border direction, The entire dress was sewn with a cotton underlining to support the silk and then a full nylon lining. The pattern i made by using a basic 50's empire waist dress and draped the front bodice. She was wonderful enough to send a quick picture of the dress on as well :-)
